All kinds or schemes nnd tricks nro resorted to by unprincipled persona to obtnln unfair advantages over their neighbors. Tlie latest nnd most dishon est of Ihese Hint has ciimn to our notice Is one by w hlch certain imiiiufneliiieraof baking powder have sought tn prejiidlcn consumers against Iho use of other brands Hint have mi elnbllihi d reputa tion as the bet nntl purest In the mar ket, for the purpose nf Inlroiliielng their own. Their method, wnnro Informed, la to lieat a cull of linking powder or n well known brand over n lamp or stove, when. If there Is a gas given oil having the odor of ammonia, the powder la con demned as being made of aiiimonlii and unlit for ue. '1 ho preji.tllcea of tlie un suspecting nrn thus excited against the baking powder submitted to the so cnlled test, and the grocer who litis ft quantity of It on hand sutlers n serious loss in consequence. U the Intelligent consumer wilt stop n moment to think, she will readily per calve that tide "lest," H aucecesrul, proves nothing but the superiority ot the baking powder tested. The nlui of all baking ptiwder makers Is lo produce nn article that shall most readily, under use, give oil' Its leavening gas. Tho powder Hint does tlila with ft moderate licnt, nt the same lime evolving the largest quantity, Is sclentlllcnlly the best. There Is probably not nn nrtlclo pre pared for root! that iiannot hu manipu lated to prove that something Is wrong about It; and when n person goes Into it Kitchen or before a housekieper who Is nut lo be presumed to understand chemical relations, and performs an experiment of even Hie simplest charac ter, it Is not difficult to impress one that something awful Is the matter. Aa tu baking powders, we could suggest a dozen testa that woiihl Im ns ridiculous in glvlngft falrldca oflhcirrelative mer its to an iinliistrui'led mind as thu one here luenttonttl. The true domestic v nine or ft linking powder consists In Its purity, whole somenesa nnd leavening power. It Is only the chemist, with his chemical ap pliances who can determine these quali ties sclentllically and exactly. Aside from this, the best let Tor h baking pow der Is to try It In making bread, mill seo which makes the most and the best. To this practical lest nil tho established brands have been put, nml housekeepers have very general!) made up tlieir minds which titer prefer, and Iho trick sters will Unit ultimately that n brand that has been n housebolti favorite for yeara will not bo displaced by reason of nny tricks which they may show.
